Jeff became fascinated by organic chemistry while working with Amos Smith at the University of Pennsylvania. After receiving his B.A. in 1995, he moved to Harvard University and earned a Ph.D. working in the laboratories of David Evans. Prof. Katz teaches introductory and advanced Organic Chemistry and General Chemistry. His research group is focused on the syntheis of nanoscale molecular scaffolds and supramolecular chemistry. Analysis of solid-state conformation is a key component of this work, which is greatly facilitated by the CCD single-crystal X-ray diffraction system located in the Chemistry Department.
